A day at the Beach

Hello dear friends,  I've just finished this cute Tilda card and yes it's another masking job but this time I added the sand, sea and sky, now how adventurous am I !!! lol.  I'm so addicted to this type of stamping that I'm now looking all over the place for background stamps. So if you know anyone who is fed up with theirs then point them in my direction please.

There are some wonderful summer challenges going on just now so my motivation and inspiration came from the following Blogs (thanks to every one of them)

Magnolia-Licious Highlites Challenge:  This month there was a wonderful Summer Bash Blog Hop Party, there's still time to hop bye the way and a theme for the challenge of either Beach Bash, Fishing or  BBQ/Picnic. I chose to go to the Beach because we don't often get the chance here in Scotland with the weather being so changeable.
Dutch Magnolia Challenge:  This time the theme chosen was Summertime.
Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge: Would love to see Summer Colours used on your projects.
The Pink Elephant Challenge: Have the theme of Fun in the Sun this week.
Paper Sundae Challenge: Have the theme of Beachy or Summery this week.
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge:  Have two wonderful picture inspirational photo's this week, I went with the colour scheme and beach wear of the first picture.
Totally Gorjuss Challenge:  Would like to see Punches or Die Cuts this week.

I would like to welcome my new friends who have become followers of my blog.  I hope you get a little encouragement and enthusiasm from my post. I will do my very best to come visit you when I have a few spare minutes.  I am working on collecting some  items for a WONDERFUL CANDY just for my followers. It will be happening real soon as I have a BIG CELEBRATION in the pipeline.  In the meantime do have a fab day where ever you are.
